Ocean Spirit Chapter 18
The icy current whipped through Kuro’s shortly cropped hair, his powerful tail propelling him through the cold waters as moonlight washed over him through the seawater. Despite the fact that he had been in the open ocean for around six months now, he still couldn’t get over the fact that he was actually free from his imprisonment. He had been experimented on, treated as some kind of lab rat, and forced into a concrete box against his own will for fourteen years of his life. Thankfully, he hadn’t forgotten how to hunt during his time in the concrete tank. His mind flickered back to Grace, a smile tugged at the corner of his lips as he remembered her bright smile, her beautiful golden hair that flowed down to her waist, and her pretty face that shined like a pearl. Even though he had hated being trapped in that aquarium, at least he had met Grace through it. He longed to see her again, but he knew he couldn’t risk returning to the beach where she lived. He had no

Ocean Spirit Chapter 17
Six months had passed since Grace had freed Kuro from her father’s aquarium. Upon freeing Kuro, she had managed to contact several animal right’s activists and explained to them what her father had done. It didn’t take long for the police to be involved and they quickly found out that her father was found guilty for the mistreatment and abuse of many marine animals. As a result, Professor Blackwood was sent to a lifetime in jail and his aquarium was closed down. All of the marine animals that used to live in the aquarium were rehabilitated and put back into the ocean respectively. Helen, Grace’s mother, took some time off work to be with her daughter after hearing what had happened to her ex-husband and celebrated Grace’s eighteenth birthday together a few weeks after the aquarium closed down. Grace finished her last few months of school and decided to take a gap year to figure out what she wanted to do. But the truth was, all she could think about was Kur

The Desolate Planet Chapter 4
After several more minutes of rather painful silence, Tegan was once again greeted by light as Azure stepped out of the tunnels. She blinked a couple of times, trying yet again to adjust to the sudden change in lighting, and she nearly gasped. Azure had taken Tegan to what appeared to be some sort of underground cave with a running stream of water that split across the middle of the room. In one corner there was a pile of soft ferns and feathers which Tegan assumed was where Azure slept. Dozens of glowing blue lights decorated the room, giving it a blueish tone to the entire area. Other ornaments were pinned up against the walls, many of which were foreign to her.
“Wow…” Tegan breathed, rather lost for words as she tried to process what she was seeing.
“Do you live here?” she asked her giant captor.
“Yes,” Azure answered, gently lowering his hand onto the floor and released Tegan from his grasp.
As soon as Azure released Tegan onto the solid fl

Tegan was finding it extremely hard not to panic in this situation, but there wasn’t exactly a lot that she could do to help herself. She decided to remain silent for the rest of the trip, afraid that if she said anything more it would anger him. He could easily end her life whenever he pleased, especially considering she was in such a vulnerable position and she was so much smaller than him.
Well, at least I discovered that something does actually live on this rock, she thought, her heart racing ninety miles per hour.
“Do you really have to hold me in your mouth? I honestly thought you were going to eat me!” Tegan blurted out, her heart rate increasing by the minute.
So much for being quiet... She thought to herself.
Azure didn’t reply, or rather he couldn’t because he was carrying Tegan in his mouth, and continued to stride across the open plains. Tegan wasn’t entirely sure what she could do at this point, seeing as she was at the mer

“KURO!” Grace yelled at the top of her lungs, her chest heaving as adrenaline pulsed through her veins. Kuro instantly sat up at seeing Grace run towards him, his eyes bright and alert.
Before she could open her mouth to speak, Grace found the button on the remote that released Kuro’s collar. She quickly pressed it with no hesitation and glanced eagerly up at her merman friend. Kuro’s emerald eyes met hers, his eyes slowly growing wider, as there was a loud clicking sound of the collar unhinging itself from around his neck. And then suddenly it fell off from his neck like it was a piece of scrap metal and fell into the water below with a loud splash. Kuro’s hands slowly reached towards his neck where his collar had just been seconds before and his eyes began to swell with tears. He tried to open his mouth to speak, but nothing came out.
“It’s okay, you don’t need to thank me,” Grace smiled. “It was the least I could do.”

The Desolate Planet Chapter 2
Tegan had to force herself not to scream. Here she was, completely defenseless and sitting on top of a giant alien that could squash her like she was some measly insect. The sleeping giant shifted, a low rumble emitted from its chest as another gust of hot air washed over her. Then, with little warning, she felt the giant begin to turn over in its sleep, causing Tegan to tumble down the side of its chest. She felt her ankle flare with pain as she collided with the rough ground below, and she grasped it with her hand, gritting her teeth, she desperately began to crawl out of the way, frantically limping with everything that she had, but she could feel the giant’s enormous body grow even closer to her small frame, threatening to completely flatten her like a pancake. At this point she couldn’t do anything to move out of the way, so she did the only thing she could - scream at the top of her lungs. There was a loud growl that pierced the thin air as Tegan smacked her hands ove

All Kuro could feel was numbness seeping through his body as Grace finished reading the last page of the journal. She slowly folded the book and craned her neck up at him.
“I…” Grace breathed, but she snapped her mouth shut before she could say anything more. She swallowed hard, trying to muster some form of speech to escape from her lips, but all that came out was a raspy, barely audible whisper.
“I guess we finally know now,” Kuro said, speaking the words for her. “This is why your father treated me like this. In his eyes my mother betrayed him.”
“Yeah…” she mumbled. “But my father was wrong…your mother didn’t betray him, it wasn’t her fault that he didn’t become a Mer.”
“Unfortunately that’s not what your father believes,” muttered Kuro. “He’s in denial that it was his fault that he didn’t become a Mer, so instead of blaming it on himself he blamed it o

The Desolate Planet Chapter 1
Tegan blinked red dust out from under her eyelids as the blazing yellow sun shone harshly on the parched ground. She turned her gaze towards the bleak horizon and squinted her eyes against the glare from the sun. The whole planet looked as if it was in desperate need of rain, yet there was not one single cloud in the violet sky that showed any promise of water. Slinging her backpack over her shoulders, she began to trudge across the dry wasteland kicking up tiny rocks as she went. As expected from the pictures that she had seen, this planet was completely red. In a lot of ways it resembled the planet Mars, expect that the sky was a vibrant purple and humans could breathe freely on the planet without a spacesuit. Tegan had come to this planet in hopes of discovering new forms of life, but so far there appeared to be nothing but dust and rocks. Her eyes darted back to her broken space pod and she pursed her lips. She had tried everything to fix her damaged spacecraft, but the entire engi

“Over the next six months, I spent nearly every hour of the day spending time with Yin in the ocean. She showed me so many amazing things that I had no idea that even existed. We flew across currents, watched whale migrations, (carefully) explored forests of jellyfish among many other things. Due to the fact that I was spending so much time out at sea, my family and friends often questioned why I was gone for hours on end each day. I simply told them it was all part of my marine biology research, which, in a way was true because Yin did actually help me a lot with my research papers. In return for Yin helping me with my research, I told her a lot about human culture as well. She seemed to be fascinated with human culture which I found oddly amusing because before I met her she wanted nothing more to do with humans. However, I kept thinking back to when Yin told me about the Ocean Spirit and that there was a possibility that she would grant wishes to humans. Six months was plen

During the cover of night, Grace visited Kuro’s tank again to finish reading the rest of her father’s journal to him. Somehow she had managed to shake Claudia off her trail again by some stroke of luck, but that still didn’t mean that the dark haired woman wouldn’t find her. For now, however, they had to use whatever time they had left to discover the rest of the secrets to her father’s journal.  
Kuro had propped himself back up onto the concrete platform, his arms folded across the floor and Grace was leaning against his arm, her legs stretched out with the journal firmly in her grasp.
She then cleared her throat and then began to pick up from where they had last left off.
“‘Yin, what’s going on? Is someone following us?’ I asked nervously.
‘Yes, and I know exactly who it is,’ she growled, her teeth glinting in the filtered sunlight.
‘Stay close to me.’ she added and I gave her a small nod.

The following day after school Grace immediately told Kuro what she had read in her father’s journal. She had even brought the journal along with her to show it to him. Luck seemed to be on their side as Dave had to leave early again due to some issues in the shark tank so that left Kuro and Grace alone together again.
“Does the name Yin ring any bells to you?” she asked Kuro who had his upper half relaxing on the concrete.
Kuro closed his eyes and then slowly opened them again.
“Yes,” he choked; his face looked like it was inflicted with pain. “That was the name of my mother.”
“Your mother is Yin!?” she exclaimed in shock.
“Wait; hold on, so my dad knew your mother when they were teenagers? That’s so…bizarre. I can’t believe it.” she murmured, running a hand through her messy golden hair.
“I can, sort of,” said Kuro. “My mother was talking to your father when I was caught in the nets

As soon as her father had opened the front door, she pelted inside, not caring if she shoved past her father on the way in, and rushed upstairs into her bedroom.
“Grace, I’m going to do some grocery shopping okay? I’ll be back in a couple of hours.” she heard her father’s voice call from downstairs.
“Okay,” she replied, her voice was emotionless.        
After a few minutes she heard the front door close and the sound of her father’s car driving down the driveway. She suddenly bolted upright, anger and the desire to seek the truth channeling through her veins as she walked into her father’s bedroom. Normally, this was a definite no-go zone for her but times had changed now. She didn’t particularly like the fact that she was snooping around her father’s bedroom looking for answers, but he hadn’t exactly been the best father to her.

“Your friend is coming to see me?” said Kuro, his eyes wide open in shock.        
“Y-yeah, but don’t worry! Terry is super nice, trust me. I mean, she can be a little…uh…excitable but it’s nothing you won’t be able to handle.” said Grace breathlessly.
She was in Kuro’s enclosure again for training and Dave had just gone to fetch more buckets of fish for Kuro to eat. She thought that now was probably the best time to warn him as she didn’t want to tell him a day before Terry arrived.
She could clearly see that he wasn’t happy about the entire situation, but she couldn’t say to Terry that she couldn’t come anymore after she had just got the all clear from her father. And not only that but she also wanted to catch up with Terry, it had been so long since she had last seen her friend.

Grace could still feel her head still pounding as she woke up the next morning, her phone alarm buzzing as it prompted her to get up and out of bed. She sat upright, switching her phone alarm off, her hair a fluffy mess of gold and yellow. She had been extremely lucky last night as Claudia didn’t spot her when she was making her way back to her room from Kuro’s tank. Before she had gone to bed she took a quick shower, thoroughly washing her hair, and it wasn’t that long after she had finished her shower and was all ready for bed when Claudia had burst in. Of course, Claudia questioned her where she had been last night as she couldn’t find her in many of the exhibits. Grace had quickly lied to the older woman that she had been near the dolphin area and although Claudia looked very skeptical, she didn’t question her any further much to her relief.

Kuro could sense immediately that there was someone in his tank. His echolocation alerted him that it was a young female that had fallen into the water. Flicking his tail, he swam over to the other side of the tank and saw a limp, lifeless form floating like a corpse through the water. The girl had shiny golden hair that flowed carelessly around her body, the moonlight that was filtered through the water made her hair almost look like star shine. He swam closer, the girl’s face was now clearly in his view, and he stiffened.
He couldn’t believe his eyes. It was Grace.
Without a second thought Kuro cupped his hands over her and swam towards the surface. Kuro couldn’t believe that Grace had actually come to the aquarium so late at night, let alone come to his tank. He wondered if she remembered their first encounter - maybe that was why she was here. Once they were at the surface, Kuro held Grace’s limp body in the palm of his hands and turned her over onto her sid

The icy current whipped through Kuro’s shortly cropped hair, his powerful tail propelling him through the cold waters as moonlight washed over him through the seawater. Despite the fact that he had been in the open ocean for around six months now, he still couldn’t get over the fact that he was actually free from his imprisonment. He had been experimented on, treated as some kind of lab rat, and forced into a concrete box against his own will for fourteen years of his life. Thankfully, he hadn’t forgotten how to hunt during his time in the concrete tank. His mind flickered back to Grace, a smile tugged at the corner of his lips as he remembered her bright smile, her beautiful golden hair that flowed down to her waist, and her pretty face that shined like a pearl. Even though he had hated being trapped in that aquarium, at least he had met Grace through it. He longed to see her again, but he knew he couldn’t risk returning to the beach where she lived. He had no idea if her father was still there or not and he couldn’t risk being captured again. Above anything else, Kuro never wanted to experience those years of torture all over again. All of a sudden Kuro stopped in his tracks, his echolocation had picked up the location of another Mer. Perhaps it was another orca Mer, like him? Before he got his hopes up, he sent out a series of echoes again, this time his echolocation revealed that it was in fact a Mer, but it wasn’t part orca. It was a shark Mer. Rolling his eyes, Kuro decided it wasn’t worth his time. Dealing with shark Mer could often be troublesome, and at that moment he didn’t want to be anywhere near a shark Mer, nor did he fancy eating one right now. Kuro continued on his way, bubbles passing over his head, until his ears picked up on something.

A scream for help.

He froze, his body completely rigid, as another scream rang out through his sensitive ears. It was definitely human and it sounded awfully familiar. Why did it sound so familiar?

Grace!

Using every ounce of strength and muscle in his body, Kuro shot out through the water in the direction of the scream, which also happened to be where the shark Mer was. A surge of protectiveness and joy swept over him all at once, joy because he was going to see Grace again and protectiveness because a dangerous shark Mer was most likely going to eat her right then and there. Soon enough he could see the shark Mer in his sights, his body half submerged in the water, the shark Mer was most likely toying Grace around on her boat. At lightning speed Kuro erupted from the dark water, crashing violently into the shark Mer’s back from behind. The shark Mer let out a cry of fury and shock as Kuro dragged him under the water, while Kuro also delivered a solid punch to the shark Mer’s face. Snarling with rage, the shark Mer’s eyes then focused on Kuro’s frame, his mouth hanging wide open in shock.

“What the heck!? An orca Mer? You’re supposed to be dead!” spluttered the shark Mer in disbelief, his eyes filled with worry. “You can’t possibly be alive! I know Yin’s pod was one of the last, and you’re Yin’s boy, aren’t you? You have her eyes.”

Kuro’s face suddenly softened at the mention of his mother. “You…you knew my mother? How?”

“Oh, you’re mother and I go way back,” the shark Mer grinned. “She was actually the one who gave me this.” He gestured to the scar on his left shoulder which was oddly shaped like a lightning bolt.

Wait…my mother…Professor Blackwood’s journal…they encountered a shark Mer named Slash…is this him?

“You’re Slash, aren’t you?” said Kuro.

Slash smirked devilishly at him. “Took you long enough to figure out, whale.”

A snarl vibrated through Kuro’s throat. “Don’t push it, fish face, I’m starting to feel a little peckish for shark now.”

“Whoa, whoa, there’s no need to get hasty here,” said Slash, panic coated his voice. “If you would be so kind to let me finish off my own dinner here and then I’ll be on my way…”

“You’re going nowhere near her!” Kuro roared, lunging towards Slash and tearing a chunk out of his right shoulder with his sharp teeth. Slash howled in pain as Kuro tore away his flesh, blood soon filled the water as the two giants thrashed about violently underneath the sea. Kuro easily outweighed Slash, in both size and strength, but that still didn’t mean that Slash was going to admit defeat quietly.

“You’re one of the last of your kind,” barked Slash. “The orca Mer race is doomed! Your entire kind is outnumbered!”

Kuro paused for a split second, his heart hammering against his chest. “Did you say one of the last of my kind?” he breathed. “I’m…I’m not alone. Where are they!? Tell me where they are!”
In a matter of seconds Kuro had placed Slash in a headlock, the shark Mer thrashed against Kuro, his shark teeth gritted in pain, but he couldn’t match up to Kuro’s sheer strength and size. He submitted in defeat against the orca Mer and stopped fighting as Kuro held him in a headlock.

“I…I don’t know,” rasped Slash. “I’ve only heard rumors, not actually seen them myself. The orca Mer race is practically dead. There’s no chance that there are some survivors still alive out there. I hadn’t seen an orca Mer in fourteen years until today.”  

“Have you heard anything else? Like where they might be?” Kuro pressed, tightening his grip on the shark Mer.

“N-No!” spluttered Slash, wheezing. “That’s all I know, I swear! Please don’t eat me!”

Kuro narrowed his jade eyes at Slash. “I won’t eat you so long as you promise not to hurt Grace.”

“Grace?” Slash questioned.

“The human girl you were about to eat!” snapped Kuro.

“Y-Yes, I promise never to harm her again!” wheezed Slash.

“Do I have your word?”

“Yes!”

Kuro stared intently into Slash’s yellow eyes for a few seconds, and then, without another word, he let him go. Slash coughed for a few brief seconds, blood still oozing out of his shoulder where Kuro had torn his flesh along with various other wounds scattered across his body. Slash shot off into the sea, not daring to look back, leaving behind a trail of blood in the water. Once Slash was out of his sights, Kuro turned his gaze towards the surface of the water – he could make out Grace’s boat floating above. He didn’t waste any time swimming to the surface and he quickly broke through the skin of the water, gazing at the tattered boat in front of him. His heart nearly caught in his throat as his eyes swept over Grace’s frame, her back faced to him, her long, golden hair slightly blowing against the soft wind of the sea.

“Grace?”

She suddenly turned around at hearing his voice, and Kuro watched as her expression lit up like a ray of sunshine as she gazed at him. She was just as beautiful as he remembered.

“Kuro!” she exclaimed, her voice filled with sheer joy. “It’s really you!”

Without warning, Kuro suddenly scooped Grace into his hands and pressed her against his chest, cupping his palms around her small frame. He felt her small hands press against his chest ever so lightly as they embraced each other in the best way that they possibly could due their drastic size differences. He could suddenly feel tears threaten to prick away at his eyes as he held the one girl who had given him hope again as the moon shone down on them from above. After a minute or so, Kuro gently pulled Grace away from his chest so that he could gaze at her with his own eyes. She appeared to be teary eyed too as she wiped her face with the sleeve of her shirt as they looked into each other’s eyes.

“I can’t believe I found you,” she said softly. “After all this time...you’re actually alive.”

“What? Didn’t you think I couldn’t survive out here on my own?” Kuro smirked, flashing his brilliant teeth. “I feel insulted.”

Grace laughed. “Well, I’m glad you managed to adapt to the sea again. I was just so worried about you. You had spent so many years in that tank I was scared you might not have made it out in the open sea.” Her face suddenly saddened.

Kuro slowly brought his index finger towards Grace and lifted her chin up with the tip of his claw ever so gently. “Hey, you don’t need to worry anymore. It’s okay. We’re back together again now.”

Grace sniffed, a single tear rolled down the side of her cheek. “Yeah, I know. I’m just so happy that you’re okay.” She grasped onto Kuro’s finger with her hands whilst also being careful not to touch his claw in the process.

Kuro smiled down at Grace, warmth spreading through his chest as he gazed at her. He couldn’t even begin to describe just how happy he was right now just to see her again.

“Have you gotten bigger?” she said, a grin tugging at her lips.

“Haven’t you gotten smaller?” Kuro laughed.

“Smaller, me!? Nuh-uh, I’ve at least grown a little bit since I last saw you.” Grace sniggered.

“No, no, no, no you’ve definitely gotten shorter.” He smirked.

Grace laughed and batted his finger away, throwing back her golden locks of hair as she wiped the tears out of her eyes.

“And thank you for saving my life,” she added. “Yet again.”

“Hey, don’t mention it,” Kuro grinned. “It’s the least I could do after everything you’ve done for me.”

Grace smiled up warmly at him. “Have you found any other orca Mer?”

Kuro’s face suddenly fell, his features saddened as his gaze drifted away. “No…I haven’t seen any.”

“But surely there must be more of your kind out there!” said Grace, gazing out towards the sea. “I mean, the ocean is so big, there has to be at least one other orca Mer out there, right?”

Kuro shook his head. “I’ve been searching every stretch of the sea, and all I’ve been greeted with is shark Mer. They’ve overrun the seas since I had been captured. And even Slash hadn’t seen an orca Mer in fourteen years until today. He said that my pod was one of the last…”

“Kuro…” Grace said softly.

“I’m really starting to believe that my pod was the very last,” he sighed.

“Don’t give up hope,” she said. “There must be at least one other orca Mer out there somewhere. They could be hiding for all we know.”

Kuro didn’t say anything. Only sadness reflected in his emerald green eyes.  

“Why don’t we go speak to some orcas?” said Grace. “Or, rather, you go speak to some orcas seeing as I can’t speak whale. Perhaps they might know if there are any other orca Mer still alive out there.”

A brief glimmer of hope flickered in Kuro’s green eyes as he returned his gaze to Grace.

“That’s a good idea,” he said, a small smile tugging at the corner of his lips. “If anyone knows, it’ll be the orca. They are our closest kin.”

“That’s great!” she beamed. “And I’m going to come with you.”

Kuro stared at Grace, his eyes grew wide. “Wait, what?”

“You can’t expect me to let you go by yourself, can you?” she chuckled. “I want to go with you Kuro.”

“But your boat is destroyed!” he said, nodding towards her ruined boat.

Grace placed a hand on her hip. “Well, I’ve got you, haven’t I?”

“It’ll be dangerous,” he replied. “Shark Mer have spiked in population since I was taken. Not to mention there are other dangerous sea creatures out there, too.”

“Like I said in my earlier statement, I’ve got you,” she smirked up at the giant merman. “Kuro, I’m coming with you whether you like it or not. I want to help you.”

Kuro laughed and ran a hand through his jet black and white hair. “I can’t convince you otherwise, can I?”

“Nope,” she grinned.

“Okay, okay, you can come,” he chuckled. “But you aren’t leaving my sight. I couldn’t live with myself if you got hurt.”

Grace nodded. “You got it,” she said, stifling a yawn.

“You look pretty tired. Do you want to call it a night?” said Kuro.

“No way, I’m not sleeping now!” she said. “I’m afraid if I do go to sleep, I’ll wake up and this was all a dream…”

“I assure you, this isn’t a dream,” he smiled. “I’m not going anywhere. When you wake up I’ll still be here.”

“Promise?”

“Promise.”

Grace gazed at Kuro one last time, and then trudged towards the bathroom in her soaking wet clothes. Despite the fact that Slash had ripped off the boat’s roof, the bathroom area was still covered. Thankfully the shark Mer hadn’t torn off the roof that covered the bathroom. After Grace had a pleasantly warm shower and changed into some nice, dry, clean pajamas she gazed outside her window one last time and saw that Kuro was still there. He winked at her before disappearing underneath the water’s surface. Grace smiled softly, her heart warm and filled with happiness, and hopped into bed. Tomorrow was going to be a good day.  
Six months had passed since Grace had freed Kuro from her father’s aquarium. Upon freeing Kuro, she had managed to contact several animal right’s activists and explained to them what her father had done. It didn’t take long for the police to be involved and they quickly found out that her father was found guilty for the mistreatment and abuse of many marine animals. As a result, Professor Blackwood was sent to a lifetime in jail and his aquarium was closed down. All of the marine animals that used to live in the aquarium were rehabilitated and put back into the ocean respectively. Helen, Grace’s mother, took some time off work to be with her daughter after hearing what had happened to her ex-husband and celebrated Grace’s eighteenth birthday together a few weeks after the aquarium closed down. Grace finished her last few months of school and decided to take a gap year to figure out what she wanted to do. But the truth was, all she could think about was Kuro. She worried daily if he was alive and well and she had no way of knowing if he was alright. Even though her father had been sent to prison, it still wasn’t safe for Kuro to return back to the local beach where Grace lived. Other fishermen who had heard the news of Kuro’s release were eager to add another fishing prize to their collection, and Kuro was number one on that list. Thankfully, however, no fishermen had even caught a glimpse of Kuro since his release.

One uneventful morning, Grace decided to go down to the beach to take her mind off her troubles. As she walked down to the beach, she could feel the salty breeze comb through her hair as she inhaled the fresh sea air into her lungs. Heaving out a sigh, she felt the sand in between her toes and edged closer towards the glistening water. The sun dazzled against the skin of the water, making the sea sparkle like diamonds in the sunlight. The water gently caressed over her feet as she felt the cool sensation of the seawater hugging her skin. She stared out to the open ocean, longing to see any of the telltale signs of water mist from a blowhole, but there was nothing but rippling water. Very slowly she inched closer into the sea, the water now above her ankles as she delved deeper, the wind whipping past her golden locks. Something stirred deep inside her, tugging at her chest, pulling her deeper into the big blue like a magnet. Maybe if she went out deeper into the water, maybe, just maybe, she might find some trace of Kuro.

No, what the heck am I thinking? Kuro is out there, somewhere, but far away from here, she thought, dragging herself away from the pull of the tide. There’s no way that I would ever find him here, Grace was now standing in the wet sand, her eyes were still locked with the sapphire blue water that stretched out before her.

But I don’t know if he’s okay…how do I know if he’s not hurt? She bit the bottom of her lip. Her eyes suddenly darted away from the ocean and to the port where all of the boats were stored. Of course, her father’s old boat was still there…completely untouched and unused since his teenage years. It was still fully operational though, but nobody, not even her father, had touched it in a very long time. Her father had in fact taught her how to drive the vessel a few years ago, and she knew how to operate the boat by herself.

Maybe…what if I did a little exploration trip, a smile tugged at the corner of her lips. And, supposedly, I found Kuro while I was sailing out there…I would finally know if he’s doing okay…of course, it is a bit of a longshot, but…

Grace’s feet appeared to move by themselves as she raced back home, her hair flowing behind her like a golden river as she ran through the village and back to her house. Grace’s mother, Helen, was sipping a cup of tea whilst reading her favourite book when her daughter burst in through the front door.

“Mum!” Grace exclaimed, her silver-blue eyes wild with excitement.

Helen nearly dropped her cup of tea. “Y-yes, whatever is the matter dear?”

“I have a crazy idea,” she panted, walking over towards where her mother sat. “And you aren’t going to like it.”

Helen raised an eyebrow at her daughter. “And what, may I ask, is this crazy idea of yours?”

Grace inhaled deeply, closing her eyes, and then exhaled calmly. She cleared her throat and steadied her breathing.

“Mum, you know how I freed Kuro six months ago,” she said. “Well, I was thinking…”

“Go on,” her mother said.

Grace swallowed hard. “I was thinking…maybe I could…go on a field trip out into the ocean, to…see if Kuro is doing okay.”

There was a pregnant pause as Helen processed what her daughter had just spilled out in front of her. Helen slowly placed her cup of tea on the coffee table and turned to face her daughter.
Grace chewed the bottom of her lip, afraid of what her mother was going to say. Despite the fact that her mother had been mostly absent since her parent’s divorce, the past six months she had spent recently with her mother had been rather peaceful and nice. She hoped her mother would understand just how much Kuro meant to her and would let her go.

Helen took in a deep breath. “He…he really means a lot to you, doesn’t he?”

Grace gave her mother a small nod. “Yes.”

Helen placed a warm hand on Grace’s shoulder, her brown eyes gazed at her daughter, a tear threatened to roll down the older woman’s cheek.

“If he really means that much to you, then go.”

Grace stared at her in shock as her mother’s words began to sink in.

“Do you really mean that?” she said softly.

Her mother nodded, her face pulled into a warm, gentle smile.

“You need him,” said Helen. “And I’m sure he needs you too.”

At hearing her mother’s words, she quickly embraced her into a gentle hug and kissed her cheek.

“Thank you so much Mum,” she said, her voice muffled as it was buried in her mother’s shirt.

“You just have to promise me one thing.”

Grace pulled away from her mother’s embrace so that she could look at her face.

“Promise me you’ll be safe, okay?”

“I promise.”

Not long after that Grace immediately began to pack her things, spare changes of clothes, her toiletries, food, water, and other essential items. She had no idea how long she was going to be out at sea, but she packed enough so that it would last her for several weeks. Once she had finished packing, she gave a final farewell to her mother and bolted down to the docks. Piloting a boat was almost child’s play to her, seeing as she had grown up with a father who spent so much time out at sea on boats. No one batted an eyelid to her as she loaded the boat with her belongings and untied the loop of rope that held the vessel to the docks. As she began to set sail out into open water, she saw her mother waving goodbye on the docking platform in the harbor. Grace tooted the boat’s horn and waved at her mother until she was no longer in sight. Grace propelled the boat full speed ahead, the waves licking the sides of the vessel as she powered through the water on her boat.

For once, Dad actually left behind something useful, she thought silently, I’m coming Kuro!

~~

Several days had passed since Grace had set sail to find Kuro. So far, she had seen a small pod of dolphins and some passing humpback whales but no signs of any giant orca merman. That didn’t break her stride, however, she was determined more than anything to locate Kuro and that drove her forward.

Honestly, who knew that something so big could be so hard to find? she thought, chewing into a ham sandwich as she gazed out into the open blue water. I know he’s out there…somewhere.

Swallowing the last mouthful of her sandwich, Grace pulled up the anchor of the boat and continued to push on through the sea. The weather had been fairly decent to her, there had been no serious storms or rain during her search so far. Hopefully her luck with the weather wasn’t going to run out anytime soon. After a few hours, the sun began to set and Grace wasted no time in lowering the anchor into the water so that she could rest for the night. The boat that her father had left behind was one of the best ones available. It had a luxury bed, bathroom, cooking facilities and a nice small deck to stare out into the ocean to. Before Grace got ready for bed, however, she decided to look out into the sea in case she saw any telltale signs of a blowhole. While she knew that it would be rather unlikely, considering how vast the ocean was and she had no idea where Kuro had swum off to, she felt like watching the sea for a while would put her mind at ease. She made her way out onto the deck, pulling up a folding chair and plonked herself onto it. The sea was completely still, not one sound could be heard except for the gentle lapping of the waves that brushed against the boat. She waited for any signs of a blowhole or a giant black dorsal fin, but of course, there was nothing but the calm water gently licking the side of her boat. The stars were shining brightly above her like fireflies caught in a giant web and she had a small hope that, perhaps the stars, somehow, would guide her to Kuro’s whereabouts. But, of course, the stars only provided a pretty sky to gaze at.

Maybe I should just call it a night… She started to make her way back inside the boat but she soon stopped dead in her tracks. She gasped at the sight that she saw looming before her, her pulse rapidly increasing by the second. A giant dorsal fin was slicing through the water at an alarming rate and it was heading straight towards the boat.

There’s only one dorsal fin that could be that big…

After so many days of searching, she had finally found him. Her heart began to swell with happiness as she rushed over to the railings of the deck and waved her arms about in hopes of grabbing his attention.

“Kuro, it’s me Grace!” she called out, her body filled with excitement at the thought of finally seeing Kuro again. The dorsal fin wasn’t making any attempts to slow down, in fact, it appeared to be going even faster than before. As the fin grew closer, she stopped waving and her arms dropped to her sides.

Something isn’t right.

Grace suddenly realized that the giant dorsal fin did not look that of orca origin, but in fact, it resembled that of a great white shark more than anything. She felt her heart drop like a stone.

Oh no…

The shark fin was now right in front of her boat, and before she even had time to run and start the boat’s engine, the fin was soon replaced by a towering merman that was certainly not Kuro. This merman, instead of being part orca like Kuro, appeared to be part shark and had a wickedly toothy grin. He had a crop of spiky grey hair on his head, clawed hands, a rather toned body and a large, lightning bolt-like scar across his left shoulder. Grace knew for certain that this merman was far from friendly, thanks to her father’s info on the shark Merpeople from his journal.

“Oh, now what do we have here hmm?” the shark merman purred, his torso looming over Grace’s petrified frame.

“Get back, I’m warning you!” she said fiercely, but she couldn’t mask the fear in her voice.

The merman merely appeared to be amused by her bold statement.

“Food that has attitude! Boy, now I’ve seen everything.” He laughed, flashing his jagged shark-like teeth.

As soon as he had called her food, she had managed to find her feet and scrambled into the control room of the boat. She desperately tried to start the boat’s engine but the boat refused to start up.

Of course, it decides to pack up right when there’s a giant shark merman waiting to eat me!

“Hey, where do you think you’re going? Do you honestly think you can hide from Slash?” rumbled the shark merman.

Hold on second, did he just say that his name was Slash!?

All of a sudden, the boat began to rock violently, and Grace soon lost her balance and fell onto the floor. Grace was thrown about repeatedly in the control room as the merman continued to rock the boat aggressively. Suddenly, everything stopped and went quiet. Grace felt as if somebody had glued her to the floor as she tried to steady her breathing.

“That fear smells divine,” rumbled Slash, his booming voice rattling her ribcage.

I’m so dead, she thought, swallowing down the lump that was beginning to form in her throat.
Okay, Slash must be at least 50 or 60 feet, not as big as Kuro, but still awfully big…she thought silently as she mulled over the dire situation over in her head. There were no weapons on board the boat that she could use to defend herself and the boats engine was toast. Her heart began to thump wildly in her chest as she tried to think of what she could do to prevent herself from becoming shark food, but she couldn’t think of anything. She had no weapons, she couldn’t escape to safety – she was completely out of options. All of a sudden there was a loud creaking sound coming from the boat’s ceiling, almost as if somebody was trying to rip the boat’s roof off.
“Oh no,” she said hoarsely as the boat’s roof was torn clean off, rubble and debris showering down like rain, and Grace was once again face to face with the giant man-eating shark merman. She tried to find her feet but she kept on falling back down again, her body was completely stricken with fear. Slash let out a deep, booming laugh which sent large racking vibrations through the salty air.

“Awh, how cute – she can’t even stand up!” he bellowed harshly.

“Don’t call me cute!” she snapped up at him, forgetting for a brief moment that he could literally end her life whenever he pleased.

“There’s no need to be like that now,” he growled, plucking her up from the floor as Grace let out a scream of protest.

“Put me down right now you overgrown fish!” she shrieked at him, flailing about in his grasp.

Slash let out a low, rumbling chuckle. “Out of all of the humans that I’ve encountered, you have been the most interesting out of all of them by far.” He grinned devilishly.

Grace narrowed her eyes at him, knowing all too well that she was at his mercy and that he had every intention of eating her, but that didn’t stop her from putting up a fight. “I know an orca Mer,” she hissed bravely, remembering that Slash knew of Kuro’s mother. “I know Yin’s son.”

Slash’s eyebrows shot up, his mouth opened wide in shock at hearing those words fall out of her mouth. “How do you know about Yin?” he croaked, completely dumbfounded.

“I know her son,” she replied, sweat beading her forehead. “I’m very good friends with him, actually. He could easily turn you into chum if he found out that you were planning on eating me.”
Slash’s yellow eyes narrowed into slits, his lips peeled back into a snarl. “Who cares if you know Yin’s son? And besides, I haven’t seen an orca Mer in almost fourteen years. Now shut up will you, I’m starving.”

Slash then opened his huge mouth, revealing his dangerously pointed shark teeth and began to lower Grace towards his lips.

“NO, YOU CAN’T!” she screamed at the top of her lungs, struggling as hard as she possibly could as Slash continued to lower her towards his gaping mouth.

Just before Slash could deposit Grace inside his mouth, a towering mass suddenly slammed into the shark merman knocking him into the dark water. Due to the sudden impact, Grace went flying straight out of his clawed fingers and plummeted into the sea. She couldn’t make any sense of what was going on around her, as everything underneath the churning waves was pitch black. Through the moonlight, Grace could just barely make out two large masses thrashing violently in the water, and the immediate thought that came to her mind was to get out of there and swim to safety. Kicking out her legs, she broke through the surface of the water while hungrily gulping down air. Giant splashes erupted through the moonlit waves, large tails harshly slapping the skin of the water, as the two giants fought fiercely underneath the sea. Grace quickly swam towards her battered boat and pulled herself up onto the deck of the boat, heaving with every breath as her heart pounded against her chest like a drum. The two giants created giant waves that slapped against her boat due to their ferocious fighting and splashing, causing Grace to grip firmly onto the rails as more waves continued to rock the vessel.

Maybe…maybe that’s Kuro out there? She thought hopefully as the two giants continued to battle. But then again, it could also be another shark Mer…

Grace tried to make out just who exactly was Slash’s opponent, but the lack of light and their sudden movements almost made it impossible to make out. After some time, however, the fighting ceased. She saw Slash’s dorsal fin make a hasty retreat into the vast ocean and vanish under the waves, it looked like he was no longer interested in making her his next meal. Her gaze flickered back to where Slash and the other Mer had been fighting, but she was greeted with nothing but still water. Her eyes scanned the rest of the open sea, desperately searching for any signs of a giant orca dorsal fin, but she couldn’t see any signs of one. She still had no idea if the Mer that Slash had been fighting was in fact Kuro, but regardless, the Mer had still saved her life.

“Kuro!” she yelled out into the night air, hoping to see his kind face emerge from the water. Seconds passed and there was still nothing. Her heart began to drop, her hopes slowly diminishing. Perhaps it had been another shark Mer that only wanted to settle some old scores with Slash and be on their way. She called out Kuro’s name once more, and after a few minutes, she sighed and turned back inside her damaged boat.

“Grace?”

Her heart nearly stopped as she slowly turned around, her gaze meeting two giant emerald orbs that bore down at her from above. Her breath hitched as she drank in the features of the looming creature that towered before her, completely bathed in moonlight, as a bright smile soon spread across her face, her heart beginning to sing with joy.

“Kuro!”
Ocean Spirit Chapter 17
Hooray, I finally finished chapter 17! xD For whatever reason, this took me an awfully long time to write, I kept writing bits and pieces here and there as I struggled to break out of writers block. I'm sorry that my updates are so slow, unfortunately that is how I write most of the time unless I have a sudden urge of inspiration. Regardless, I'm really happy with how this chapter turned out, even if a few things do seemed rushed, I hope you guys enjoy it. Feel free to comment your thoughts below. ^.^  


Previous: Chapter 16

After several more minutes of rather painful silence, Tegan was once again greeted by light as Azure stepped out of the tunnels. She blinked a couple of times, trying yet again to adjust to the sudden change in lighting, and she nearly gasped. Azure had taken Tegan to what appeared to be some sort of underground cave with a running stream of water that split across the middle of the room. In one corner there was a pile of soft ferns and feathers which Tegan assumed was where Azure slept. Dozens of glowing blue lights decorated the room, giving it a blueish tone to the entire area. Other ornaments were pinned up against the walls, many of which were foreign to her.

“Wow…” Tegan breathed, rather lost for words as she tried to process what she was seeing.

“Do you live here?” she asked her giant captor.

“Yes,” Azure answered, gently lowering his hand onto the floor and released Tegan from his grasp.

As soon as Azure released Tegan onto the solid floor, she collapsed letting out a soft scream as pain flared in her ankle as she fell onto the dusty ground.

Azure’s eyes widened at seeing Tegan in distress and moved in closer towards her.  

“Are you okay?” he asked gently, his hand hovering over her fragile form, contemplating whether to pick her up or not.

“Does it look like I’m okay?!” she snapped harshly at him, gritting her teeth.

His gleaming eyes glazed over her injured ankle. “You’ve fractured your ankle.” He stated.

Tegan narrowed her eyes at him. “Yeah, and you’re the one who got it fractured. When you were turning over in your sleep you made me fall and injure my ankle.” She said crossly.

Azure blinked, his pupils dilated for a brief second. “I caused you pain?” he whispered, his face looked crestfallen.

Before Tegan could even respond, Azure shuffled away. It appeared as if he was looking for something.

“What are you doing?” she asked him.

There was the sound of fabric shifting as Azure worked away in a small corner. After a couple of seconds Azure returned again, except he was holding a human sized splint in between his claws and some strips of tattered cloth. Tegan watched him curiously as he cautiously inched closer towards her, his wickedly sharp claws made their way towards her ankle and carefully slipped the splint onto her foot, delicately wrapping the cloth around her ankle.

Tegan’s gaze flickered up to the giant being before her, completely in awe that something so large could be so gentle and that he had actually conjured up a splint for her.

“Why are you helping me?” she mumbled in confusion.

“I couldn’t let you suffer,” Azure replied. “I’m surprised humans break so easily. Where are your protective scales? How do you even survive in the open like that?”

“Well, humans are just born like that. I guess compared to you I am rather fragile,” Tegan admitted. “But…thank you for doing that.”

“No, it was the least I could do,” Azure answered. “I caused you to fracture it after all.”

“Yes, but in your defense, you were asleep. There’s no way you could’ve known I was there.” Tegan said.

“I suppose so,” Azure grunted.

Tegan glanced down at the splint that Azure had made for her. She was surprised that he had made one so quickly just for her.

“So…what are you exactly?” asked Tegan.

Azure raised an eyebrow at her sudden question.

“Why do you ask?” Azure questioned her.

“My entire reason for being on this planet was to find out if any alien lifeforms existed here,” Tegan explained, shifting into a more comfortable sitting position. “So, it would be nice if I knew what you were. You’re the first alien I’ve ever met and I need to have something to show the people back home or this entire mission would’ve been a complete waste of time.”

“My species are called Khrelans,” he answered. “But it would’ve been much better for you if you had not come here at all.”

Tegan narrowed her eyes at him. “Why not?”

“Because there are a lot of lifeforms on this planet that wouldn’t hesitate to make a meal out of you,” said Azure darkly.

“You’re joking, right?” said Tegan. “Please tell me you’re joking.”

Azure’s gaze drifted over towards a small patch of dirt on the ground and he stared at it as if it was the most interesting thing in the room.

“Azure, please tell me what’s out there. I need to know.” Tegan’s voice hitched, her heart rate quickly began to increase.

Azure’s gaze returned to Tegan’s trembling frame. His eyes had suddenly gone very dark and ominous.

“Other Khrelans would eat you without a second thought,” he murmured. “It’s best if you just stay here for now and rest.”

“O-Other Khrelans?” Tegan mumbled. “But they’re your kind, surely they wouldn’t eat me if they’re like you?”

“Believe me, they really would eat you,” Azure said. “And that’s just Khrelans. Look, I think you just need some rest for now.”

“Perhaps you’re right,” Tegan said, trying to steady her rapid breathing.

Azure slowly shifted towards her and very gently scooped her up into his hand, while also being careful not to jostle her fractured ankle, and laid her down softly on the nest of soft ferns and feathers.

“But this is your bed, isn’t it? Where are you going to sleep?” Tegan asked, rather surprised that he had given up his own bed for her.

“I’ll be fine. And besides, you need a soft place to rest more than I do. I’m pretty used to sleeping on hard ground anyways.” Azure replied with a warm smile, and, without another word, he curled up and closed his eyes.

Tegan watched as Azure’s chest started to rise and fall as he drifted off to sleep as she made herself comfortable in the soft ferns and feathers. She wasn’t sure what to think about Azure at this stage, in fact, he could turn on her at any moment and she would be completely helpless to stop him. But she could see that there was a kindness that emitted from him, and so far, he had been very helpful and caring towards her. Thinking back a few hours ago, when she had first encountered him, she had been certain that he was going to eat her. But now he seemed to care about her safety and he had even made a splint for her fractured ankle. All she could do now was stay with him and hopefully she would find a way to repair her broken ship once her ankle had healed.

Well, even if he does turn on me, it’s not like I can escape with this ankle, she thought to herself, swallowing hard. I guess I should try and get some sleep for now…

Tegan slowly closed her eyes, steadied her breathing, and let sleep wash over her.
The Desolate Planet Chapter 4
Hello! Yes, I am alive. xD I don't think I'll actually continue writing Desolate Planet, but for now I'll see how I go. I'm also sorry that I haven't updated Ocean Spirit in months, I've been working on the next chapter for it and I'm really struggling to continue writing it. But don't worry though, I will push through it but it just means that the chapter will be rather late coming out. Anyways, I hope you enjoy this rather short chapter for Desolate Planet. Feedback keeps me going. c:

Tegan was finding it extremely hard not to panic in this situation, but there wasn’t exactly a lot that she could do to help herself. She decided to remain silent for the rest of the trip, afraid that if she said anything more it would anger him. He could easily end her life whenever he pleased, especially considering she was in such a vulnerable position and she was so much smaller than him.

Well, at least I discovered that something does actually live on this rock, she thought, her heart racing ninety miles per hour.

“Do you really have to hold me in your mouth? I honestly thought you were going to eat me!” Tegan blurted out, her heart rate increasing by the minute.

So much for being quiet... She thought to herself.

Azure didn’t reply, or rather he couldn’t because he was carrying Tegan in his mouth, and continued to stride across the open plains. Tegan wasn’t entirely sure what she could do at this point, seeing as she was at the mercy of a giant alien being that could end her life right here and now if he so pleased, so she decided it was best to remain as still as possible to avoid slipping out of her backpack straps.  

After what felt like days, Azure finally stopped when they reached what appeared to be an entryway to an underground tunnel.

Great, we’re going back to complete darkness, she thought bitterly as Azure began to descend underneath the scorching ground. Once again Tegan was shrouded in complete darkness, and it was then that the sensation of crippling fear truly began to set into her body. She began to shake violently as tears began to swell in her eyes.

“Please let me go I’m so sorry!” she almost screamed, her lungs nearly leaping out of her throat.

All of a sudden she felt clawed fingers fold around her trembling frame and gently scoop her up into what she assumed was Azure’s waiting palms. She felt giant scaly fingers curl around her body and she nearly flinched at the touch.

“You are one strange little thing,” Azure’s voice rumbled all around her. All she could see through the thick blackness was Azure’s glowing blue eyes yet again, and the fact that his eyes were the only things that she could see bothered her immensely.

“What are you going to do to me?” she croaked her voice shattering like glass.

Azure’s glacial eyes widened at her question.

“What am I going to do with you?” he echoed.

“Well, for starters, I can’t let you go – a little thing such as yourself shouldn’t be out there all alone. You could get killed.” he rumbled.

“So…you aren’t going to kill me?” Tegan sniffled.

“Why would I kill you? I didn’t even know what a human was until you showed up.” he grunted.

“But I disturbed you from your sleep! And you sounded so angry…” she said softly.

“That was before, I mean, who wouldn’t be angry if someone fell from the ceiling and landed on top of you while you were asleep?” he replied.

“Okay, good point,” Tegan admitted. “But why would you want to protect me? And what was the point of you carrying me in your mouth!? I thought you were going to eat me!”

Azure’s icy blue eyes narrowed. “I prefer walking on all fours, it’s a lot easier than walking on two,” he grunted. “And I wasn’t planning on eating you.”

“Well that would’ve been great if I had known that earlier!” Tegan shouted harshly, her face flaring up. “I thought I was going to wind up as alien food!”

Azure merely grunted and Tegan could’ve sworn that he rolled his eyes at her.

“You could at least apologize,” snapped Tegan, her face burning.

Azure didn’t reply, but instead brought her closer towards his chest with his hands cupped around her small frame and began to descend even deeper into the dark tunnels.

“Just where are you taking me?” Tegan asked her voice a lot softer now as her stomach twisted itself into knots.

Once again he said nothing, but at least this time he wasn’t carrying her in his mouth. Tegan decided to actually remain quiet this time; it wasn’t like anything she did or said would make any difference. She could hear Azure’s strange heartbeat beating rhythmically beside her, in fact, it sounded as if he had more than one heartbeat.

Just what exactly IS he? She thought to herself, her own heart pounding against her chest.
